Though the significance of Holy week is behind us the memories are not. Indeed the mysteriousness concerning the tenets of Holy Week confronts and confuses all who want to silence the Christ message. That is good reason for you and me, His church to be jubilant! Prepared, and engaged to retaliate against all who mocked our recent observation of Holy Week. By mocking the Christ crucifier’s with people being brought to redemption through Jesus.
Zachariah captured for us this haunting memory. “They will look upon Me whom they have pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. See Zachariah 12:10.
Paul, the greatest churchman ever to have lived said this about John. Who was one the twelve disciples of Jesus. And recognized by Paul, as one of the three pillars that made team Jesus work. See Galatians 2:9. John held Pilate responsible for causing His Christ and ours to suffer unmerciful brutality. Allowing his soldiers to twist a crown made of thorns onto His head. Mocking Him by dressing Him in a purple robe. Then laughingly saying, “Hail, King of the Jews. Then in a spirit of utter contempt for Jesus they struck him with their hands.” See John 19:1-3.
The question to be answered individually because the church consists of individuals. Have you, have I, have we collectively reached the state of spiritual awareness that we indeed are grieving His murder? And those, cruel behaviors that precipitated His execution? Beyond what, we would grieve for the loss of a loved one or a firstborn child? If so, then, we should be very angry because the mockery and piercing of our Redeemer continued through Holy Week 2017 and reaches us today. As His executioners work to silence His church, in ways unimaginable by the nations founding father’s.
Is there a greater mockery of Holy Week that has turned a tragedy into week of merry making? Yes! Because, the unthinkable has occurred. With the trio that will destroy America. The ordination of homosexuals as ministerial servants of Jesus Christ by some church denominations. The nation wide legality of homosexual marriages. Nothing is more sicking to Jesus Christ than to hear a man refer to another man as his wife. And lastly, allowing people to use public bathrooms by gender identification, and not gender identification recorded on their birth certificates
Here’s an expose on the matter. “Professing to be wise, they became fool.” See Romans 1:22. And in the process, Paul warns, “That those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” See Romans 1:32b.
